Question about 2000 Ford Focus
The fluid level is good. The PS pump is turning and the belt is tight. The pump makes a slight sucking sound when I turn. The fluid is clear. The pump doesn't scream when I turn. The engine doesn't slow down when I turn. I believe it is the pump but I don't know how to determine if it is the pump or the rack. How can I eliminate one or the other without substitution.
Change the pump ,fluid is clear ??,engine doesnt slow down when turning wheel,,doesnt scream or make a noise ,pump ,-------------
rack faults ,,,,,,steering pulls to one side then when reverse camber it pulls the other way ,cotton valve sticking ,oil leaks from steering gaiters ,seals worn .steering very light in as much as it wants to go both ways at once ,no free play in cotton valve .
